Fragrances, Perfumes & Aftershaves That Make Perfect Scents.
I have always loved perfumes and aftershaves, although I have to admit my appreciation for scents didn’t start until I was in my mid-twenties. It was Green Tea by Elizabeth Arden that did it for me, the fresh scent always feels so light and fluffy to me. So you probably know all about the types of scents – Florals, Woody, Fresh & Fruity and Oriental (I’ve included a reminder). To be honest that is as far my as perfumery skills went until now. Honestly, there is a lot of thought that goes into creating the perfect scent of perfume and aftershave. Making it so much more special when choosing the perfect scent for yourself or others.

Types of Scents
Woody – Indulge in the scents of Wood, Pine, Sandalwood and musk, for that earthy and warming feeling.
Floral – This refreshing romantic feminine choice is the most loved of all, floral perfumes contain the scent of at least one flower, leaving you feeling delicate and dreamy.
